Oatmeal Cookies x 1st Blog Monthsary!

Here I am again manning the kitchen and attempting not to make a mess. Lol! Kidding aside, I made oatmeal cookies the other day because my dad bought a large bag of Quaker Oats. Unfortunately, he forgot that it contains a high amount of uric acid which is a no-no for him, so he gave the whole bag for me to consume. Instead of eating it the usual way, I decided to allot some for making oatmeal cookies.I just recently started baking as I stated on a previous post, so please bear with me! :)

I forgot where I got my recipe but I think it was from the Joy of Baking.

Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup vegetable shortening (I used butter)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup water (I used milk. I don't know if that's ok but my cookies tasted great.)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup flour (I added another 1/4 cup because the mixture I made seemed too runny)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

the cast!


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Beat brown sugar, shortening, and granulated sugar
I don't have an electric mixer so I let the butter soften first so I could easily incorporate the ingredients.
  • Add egg, water, and vanilla
  • Add combined oats, flour, salt, and baking soda

  • Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until edges have become golden brown

PS: I might have to limit my baking/experimenting to twice a month only because it consumes so much gas and LPG has just increased prices lol.

PPS: Today is my blog's 1st monthsary! Yay! :)
